It is that time of year, when I give up running water. The RV Dealership that I bought Wanda from has a drive through winterizing event each year at this time.
I keep an eye open to learn the exact date each year, but I know that it happens in early October.
Well, this year it is happening a week this Saturday, Saturday the 30th to be exact.
It’s funny; this doesn’t really bother me that much, as I really haven’t used my indoor plumbing all that much this summer season.
Sure, I use the taps, and that is nice, but a luxury. I haven’t used the shower for a few months, since before I lost the propane system.
With the lack of convenient access to water to fill the main tank, it just isn’t worth it. So, I have my jug showers each morning, and that gets the job done.
After I winterize I will officially be in Fall/Spring Mode.
What this means is that I will still be able to use my grey water tanks (as in the sink and bathtub drains) and my Blackwater Tank (as in my toilet).
Those I can use until the temp drops down consistently below zero. At that point I will not be able to drain my tanks, as the valves (at the sewer connection end) will be frozen shut.
So, this is yet another way that life rolls on and I adapt to it. I have the better part of two weeks until my pipes run dry, so I will make the best of it.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive and keep moving forward!
